    Hi BellaFond. I personally think a 3.88 GPA sounds great! I will probably have the same as I got a B in stats a few years back. They only count 8/10 prereqs for your GPA, 3/4 have to be your lab science so you could just not count MIC to bring your GPA up? I have no idea about the TEAS, as I have not taken it. Have you attended the info session?

    Hi Courtneyfaith,
    Yes, I didn't think about leaving MIC out of the select GPA. Yes, I've attended the initial information session, but now I'm waiting for the one given to those that are ready to apply. I actually was feeling okay about my grades but then I started reading the stats from those that applied last year and I got really scared. I probably won't take the TEAS until the summer, I need to brush up on my math. I just wanted to get an idea of the difficulty level. I had a friend who took the HESI to enter the community college RN program and so I was wondering if maybe the TEAS was comparable to it.

    Also one last question. Is anyone aware definitively if the TEAS can only be taken once or can be taken twice? I've been given confusing/conflicting info. I have an advising apt Wednesday so I'll be sure to ask then too. When I look for TEAS exam dates I only see Grand Canyon (and evit in Mesa) but they said you can only take it there if you're applying there. I am looking through ATI website, is there a different place I should be looking or are there just no dates up yet for us?

    Yay!!! We will definitely get to meet. . My name is Rachel and I have crazy curly hair. I'm getting excited!

    I should have asked the advisor about the post-bac admission cut off. I saw the summer traditional cut off score was 1.69. Even if I don't get into the post-bacc program, I think I have a good shot at the year-round traditional.

    I am under the impression (from the info session) that you can only take the TEAS once unless you fail it. I know that the TEAS is one of the main things that will be discussed at the placement workshop.

    Just had meeting with nursing advisor. She did not know the cut off for last year but said mean GPA was 3.92 and lowest was 3.7 something (with TEAS in the high 90s). Still 40 spot open and they guess about 80 applicants (who qualify). We need to do really well on TEAS I guess

    Hi All! Thank you Courtney for letting me know about this forum! It will be really helpful when this waiting and applying gets stressful! I'm applying for the ASU Post-Bacc 2014 program! I'm finishing my degree in Biology this May with two prerequisites left to complete after this. I'm planning on taking Micro at Gateway in the summer session (7/1-8/1) and Pathophys in the fall at one of the community colleges. I went to the application workshop on Monday (4/8) and am going to start studying for the TEAS right after graduation. Hopefully I'll be able to brush up on all of those subjects enough for the test! Good luck everyone!
